GFN-262144 Mega Prime!

PrimeGrid - Pi, 12.01.2018 - 13:47
On 10 January 2018, 12:26:12 UTC, PrimeGrid’s Generalized Fermat Prime Search found the Generalized Fermat mega prime: 3853792^262144+1 The prime is 1,726,452 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 6th for Generalized Fermat primes and 55th overall. The discovery was made by Rod Skinner (rjs5) of the United States using an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 in an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8700K CPU at 3.70GHz with 16GB RAM, running Linux. This GPU took about 18 minutes to probable prime (PRP) test with GeneferOCL3. Rod is a member of the Intel Corporation team. The PRP was confirmed prime by an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz with 16GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 10 Professional. This computer took about 6 hours 59 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. For more details, please see the official announcement.

File upload issues

LHC@home - Po, 08.01.2018 - 11:25
Our NFS storage backend got saturated and hence uploads are failing intermittently.

The underlying cause is an issue with file deletion, we are trying to resolve that.

Sorry for the trouble and thanks for your patience with transfers to LHC@home.

Validation Inconclusive Errors

Milkyway@Home - So, 06.01.2018 - 04:42
Hi all,

There has been some reports of validation inconclusive issues occurring with the Nbody workunits. It seems to be isolated to the nbody app. I believe this coincided with a database issue on our end. I am working on resolving the issue.

Thank you for you patience and continued support,

New Student and QMML Project

GPUGRID - Št, 04.01.2018 - 15:44
Hello everyone and happy new year! My name is Dominik and I am a masters student from Germany. I studied biochemistry in the city of Bayreuth, but I always focused my work more towards biophysics and bioinformatics. I'm in the group since October, where we have since then started to initiate a quantum chemical machine learning project. We soon came to the conclusion that we need a quantum chemical database in order to drive research forward in this field. This is where we need your help! Some of you have already seen that I released a small amount of 50.000 WUs yesterday evening and there is even more. The WUs contain a certain amount of small molecules for which quantum chemical simulations will be performed. Depending on the size of the molecule the simulation (and the WU) will take longer. We did initial benchmarks to estimate how to design the WUs, but everything turned out a bit different with the very long WUs I prepared for Toni which you were fighting with over the last month. Thanks to everyone who was helping and sticking through this! I will try to adjust the WUs as best as I can, but for now the current DOMINIK WUs that are already on the server are fixed. Regarding the windows based QM tasks I cannot give a clear answer about this yet, but it's definitely one of our goals. It is a long term goal of ours to keep running the quantum chemistry tasks on GPUGRID and I try my best to ensure that there are always tasks available. So thanks again to everyone who is participating and helping out. I really appreciate it very much. Have a great start into 2018!

Charity Event 2018

Rosetta@home - Št, 04.01.2018 - 02:30
The Charity Team has chosen Rosetta@home for their 10th annual event to receive extended computation support for 2 weeks (January 14th 2018, 0.01h to January 27th 2018, 23.59h UTC). To participate, BOINC members are asked to leave their ‘Home Teams‘ and join the Charity Team to crunch Rosetta@home together without the normal ‘Race Conditions‘ during this time frame.

To join the Charity Team at Rosetta@home please click here:

You can find more information on the Charity Event forums:

Happy New Year from Einstein@Home!

Einstein@Home - St, 03.01.2018 - 16:02

Dear Volunteers,

I want to thank you for your continuing contributions to Einstein@Home, and to wish all of you a healthy and happy 2018.

The past year has seen several important steps forward, including publication of the first results from Einstein@Home searches in
advanced LIGO data, and the discovery of many new gamma ray pulsars in data from the Fermi satellite.
